We had a recent thread called glory shots featuring photos of Commander wakes, and it was a lot of fun.

This thread is called helm shots, showing people at the helm of their Commanders (or generally having fun on board)!


If you are planning on browsing through all of the GREAT photos we have in this thread, just click this link and all photos will load with the click of your mouse. It will take a few moments, but it may be more conveient for you to do this, at your option! This very page will reload and you're off !!

Here is Kevin Bray, owner of FXA-31-4049 on Travis Lake, Texas with his daughter KayeLynn (far left), first mate Amy, and son Samuel, ready for another boating season. It is smiles like these that make all the expense and hard work for restoration and general maintenance worth it. Classic boats can make some classic memories!

For some reason which remains a mystery to me, I recall my name being associated with this photo in the past. My wife asked my why I was laughing out loud at the computer this morning, and I had to show her this photo. Now my browsing activities are now suspect. Fortunately, she has a good sense of humor, but it took a moment before she laughed too.

Good one Paul, thanks for making us both laugh this morning, and for initiating a discussion about a runabout project too.
